Sitting in the rain
Watching as the drops
Dapple
Then completely cover
The ground
And myself

The swirling words
That I haven’t been able to align
Start to fall
Perfectly into place

Answers
So simple
So basic
So honest
So straightforward
Emerge
As the noise is washed away.

Too late for when you needed them
But there’s comfort
In the clarity
